Covered with JOY - Design Wall end of November

>> Monday, November 28, 2011

 My design wall is Fu -ull this week! All 3 projects are for ME and will probably be up there for a little while as I try to finish up some Christmas gifts.

One project - an ongoing sampler project using these 4 fabrics - the poinsettia print, gold, hand dyed pink {by Jackie} and a dark green I found after I started making the blocks. The top two blocks are from the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks volume 4. The one on the top right is my block made with a print instead of the holly applique.

The trees on the bottom left are the cut offs from the block above it. I can't throw anything out! I love the challenge of making until the fabric runs out:) My son played with this block and put his own button design on it. I played with the buttons too and took a photo before I put them back in the jar.

 The baskets are for me too! I think this is as big as it's going to get due to fabric limitations. Which is okay, because I have enough of the blue to do the binding and I think I like it this simple. The basket applique is a Pat Sloan pattern. If you're really curious you can see my original intentions here for this little quilt I call "Hybrid Happiness".

I'm really happy with my little log cabin blocks. They are 5.5 inches unfinished, made of 1.5 inch scraps and are my current leaders and enders project. The last two are waiting for their final 'logs'. I'm planning to make a whole bunch of small quilts next year and am really happy to have this one almost finished. It will measure approximately 15 x 20 inches.

I'm glad I like these projects because I may be looking at them all month! This week the plan is to finish up some Christmas presents to mail away next week. Then my son's quilt for Christmas - I am almost done quilting it. Nothing like a deadline to finish quilting a quilt!! Then I usually plan one project to finish up over New Year's. I haven't decided which one yet this year. . . I'll let you know:)

With Joy,
